Left to right, top to bottom, we have Arminian Sermon, Catholic Sermon, Charismatic Sermon, and Southern Baptist Sermon. I found these here.
My brother linked me to this website the other day. Maybe this stuff is only funny if you’ve experienced it first-hand, so if you haven’t been in the Fundamental Baptist culture maybe it won’t be hilarious to you. It certainly is to me; self-deprecating satire (not to be confused with ridicule). I’m proud to be called a Christian, but people sure can do funny things, and I think it’s healthy to laugh at ourselves… so here are some great opportunities to do just that! Tom in the Box has produced a few poignant examples of ways we’ve… um… mispriorized in Christian conservative circles along the way. Yeah, that’s a gentle way to put it. Misprioritized.
- Like saying you don’t need to know what you’re doing, as long you feel “called” to the ministry. I think I met this guy.
- Or like torturing a Biblical text into knots so that it will fit in with a modern-day dogma. Like this: Squirmeneutics! What a great word! I once heard a guy preach a sermon on why women should not wear culottes. Amen, brother, and thank you for that investment of 45 minutes of our lives.
- I tried to pick a good KJV only post, but I couldn’t decide. Really, anything under that category is terrific.
- Okay, this is not related at all to potholes in fundamentalism, it’s just funny. See, now I’m one of those Baptists who don’t believe in woman pastors, and THIS is why!
